Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Candy Sprinkles Nectarine is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.


Prunus persica var. nucipersica 'Candy Sprinkles'

The Candle Sprinkles Nectarine is a late August Burchell Exclusive Variety. A dark almost burgundy colored skin opens up to a bright yellow flesh sprinkled with pink and red flecks.

Planting & Care

Nectarines prefer light, well-drained, somewhat sandy soil. Mulching helps retain moisture and helps to stabilize the soil temperature. Nectarines grow best in full sun in a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Water regularly, at least weekly, during the first year in the ground. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Enjoy clouds of showy pink blossoms in the Spring. Nectarines are great for eating fresh and can be used in recipes the same ways peaches are used.
